If you are visiting New York City with kids, Grand Central Station is a fun stop. Our kids have been train enthusiasts for several years so we made a point of stopping at Grand Central Terminal during our family trip to New York City. It is a busy, bustling place and completely impressive.
Grand Central Depot opened in 1871. The original 1871 building was Grand Central Depot. It became Grand Central Station after renovation and expansion in 1901. Then in 1913 a new building was unveiled, the current building, as the Grand Central Terminal. This might explain why you find it called all three of these titles in different places. In case you were curious, technically it is currently Grand Central Terminal.
Grand Central Terminal is accessible by subway, bus, train, and airport shuttle. We took the subway in and then caught a train out to the New York Botanical Gardens.
*Climb the steps in the main terminal to get a better view.
*Grab a bit to eat at one of the many dining spots.
*Grand Central is open from 5:30a-2:00a.
*There are elevators and ramps making a stroller possible, but I recommend carrying your infant or toddler in a baby carrier if at all possible. As with all public transportation, strollers will definitely slow you down.
